I have a Win 2000 pc w/ a linksys wireless adapter. Everything seemed fine since Feb of this year. Some how, all of the sudden, as of yesterday, it is super slow and has constant popups. I quess my son installedsomething? I tried to find a free spyware/antivirus solution and somehow installed " AG2009" it's looks like a Microsoft Security thing or is it?...I CANNOT disable it or uninstall it. It constantly pops up keeps telling me to register and pops itself up evey few minutes, making it impossible to do anything. I can't even get onto the web to download anything to help! There (2) icons on the task bar showing a multi colored shield and a red shield with a white x, you cannot do anything with these It keeps asking me to register. I don't see the Microsoft name anywhere either. I even tried to reinstall Win 2000 thinking it would wipe out everything...but....everything came back? So, how can I get rid of this "AG2009" and why isn't a reinstall of Win 2000 wipeing things out. I've spent so many hours on this...It's an older Pc, but it's for my 4 year old son who loves it. I appreciate any help.
